The city of Montpelier repaired a six-foot long break in a water main on Nelson Street within hours of its breaking on Monday, Sept. 18. Repairs were completed at 8:30 p.m. according to Public Works Director Kurt Motyka. The city is taking water samples to test for coliform bacteria, he said. In the meantime a boil-water notice is required for all water system customers on Nelson Street from Barre Street to Ridge Street, 3 Ridge Street, 6 Ridge Street, and Gallison Hill Road from 764 Gallison Hill Road to 930 Gallison Hill Road, until further notice, according to the city website. “It was a high volume leak,” Motyka said. “It went up to 4,000 gallons a minute.” Motyka said he expects the boil water notice should be lifted by Wednesday, Sept. 19.
